Quite simply the best of its kind
Over 60 years of naval compressor expertise went into the development of the Sauer 5000 Series. Like all Sauer compressors, the 5000 Series has an outstandingly compact, shockproof design, generates minimal air- and structure-borne noise, features proven technology with first-class worldwide references, and offers state-of-the-art options, such as the latest dryer, control and drive technology. The WP5000 (200 m³/h@max. 400 bar) and the WP5500 (80 m³/h@max. 350 bar) are both vertical-type compressors and can be equipped with either an AC or DC motor. They are suitable for all surface vessels and also available in a highly sophisticated submarine version. The special features of the 5000 Series are the vertical crankshaft with the four cylinders radially arranged around it and the directly coupled motor on top of the compressors.
